I've also got the Batgirl and Catwoman with one of each of the others on order through Previews. So far I'm really impressed with the design and quality.

They're wicked cute. Too expensive for me though. They'd make great gashapon.

The first wave was 35.00 the next wave was 40.00

I beleive the next wave is 45.00 and the wave after that is 50.00

(Their DCU women busts are the same- started at 45.00 and looks like the newest ones will be pushing 60.00

--DC direct is getting as bad as Sideshow

Inflation is the monster you're looking for. I wouldn't blame the companies producing the most superfluous objects in the world for prices rising. I'd blame the people who insist on having total control over the price of our money (and that would be the elected body of individuals whom political discussion bans prohibit the discussion of).

Re: Ame-Comi PVC Statues

Got my Wonder Woman and Cheetah yesterday, I'll try to post some pics soon if anyone is interested.

I need to try to fix the ankle on my Catwoman, standing on the shelf she slowly started to lean and now her leg is bent a little.

On a side note, there is also this thread about these in the Super Hero forum, but this one seems to be getting more diversive conversion

Mine does the same thing, I've tried boiling water to fix the issue twice and it didn't work.

Great find!
Looks like they may have change the stands to avoid the leaning issues.

On a side note, my 2 Comies have started to lean.

Re: Bishoujo (pretty girl) & Ame-Comi PVC Statues

Looks like Marvel is joining in on the fun!

A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! From the pages of the X-Men comes the powerful and gorgeous mutant ROGUE, the first in an exciting new series of Marvel Comics superheroines presented in the Japanese Bishoujo (pretty girl) style. This original design has been specially created by the incomparable illustrator Shunya Yamashita! Fans should be familiar with Yamashita-sensei's style as Japan'Bs leading Bishoujo artist, from his art books, video game work, as well as multiple figural collaborations with Kotobukiya.

Hmm, nice. I may have to get this line. I wonder who else they have planned. Psylocke would look great in this style.

Thanks for the heads-up about this, DS.

No problem.

These will look great with the Ame-Comi figs!

I could easily see them doing Emma Frost!

I would like to see:

Jean
Black Cat
Storm
Electra
Spiderwoman (I don't know if she would work too good due to the mask.)

Yeah, didn't even think about Emma! She'd be perfect for this line.

I'm sure Jean will be soon. Maybe Shadowcat coming out of a wall.

Yeah, her ankle started to bend and she was leaning. I've taken her down until I can figure a way to correct it without breaking her. She is the only one I've had any issues with though.

What I did, I tilted the base so she could bend back to normal.

I got Wonder Woman yesterday and she looks sweet! I'm glad they changed to the bases to have a clear plastic pole to hold them up!

Unfortunately not all of the newer statues come with the plastic pole, but the good news is they seem to have better foot pegs and are balanced well enough that leaning shouldnt be a problem.

Yup, Chewie is in Tip Top shape! I just cleaned this weekend too!
